Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cup fresh pink or ruby grapefruit juice, at room temperature
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 33/100 cup superfine sugar
  • 33/100 sprig Mint sprigs

Preparation

Baking Directions:

Combine juice, water and sugar in bowl and whisk until the sugar has dissolved.

Pour liquid into a 13 by 9-inch baking pan.

Freeze until hard, about 3 to 4 hours.

Serving Directions:

To serve, scrape with a fork and spoon the scrapings into small chilled martini glasses or small glass bowls.

Garnish with small sprigs of fresh mint.

Tips:

This is probably the easiest dessert in my whole repertoire, but it may also be one of the most perfect.

It's bright, clean and refreshing flavor is a welcome ending to any meal.

When I serve it in a small wide-mouthed glass and top it with a little sprig of mint, it looks really beautiful.

You can make this a couple of days in advance but then you'll want to cover it well with Saran Wrap so it doesn't absorb any freezer flavor.
